Hello?

@  Evac : (17 October 2017 - 04:39 PM)

Yeah, it's the Allspark.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 October 2017 - 04:35 PM)

Okay, so it is the allspark doing it, and not some piece of malware I need to run a system scan over, that's basically all I wanted to know.

@  Evac : (17 October 2017 - 04:34 PM)

If, say, Hillary or Bernie was president, we'd have a chance, but with the current administration... We're pretty much hugged.

I don't know why we're even bothering; there's no way in hell a GOP-controlled congress would listen to common proles like us.

@  Evac : (17 October 2017 - 04:32 PM)

Yeah, so did I.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 October 2017 - 04:19 PM)

Okay, so I just got a pop up telling me I need to call congress about the FCC killing net neutrality. Anyone else get that?

Wonder if Overboard or Crashbash would be easier to paint over. Generally dark colors are harder but then again, screaming fuschia seems like it'd be difficult to cover too.

Reminds me of when my nephew was one year old and my sister got him a puppy. He couldn't say puppy properly and it sounded like poppy, so Poppy is what they called her.

Yeah. I thought it had some interesting informational articles too.

@  Bass X0 : (15 October 2017 - 01:59 PM)

does anyone else miss the ToyFare magazine? I just read it for the pictures and jokes rather than using it as a serious guide for buying and selling toys.

Last night, playing Mario Kart with my daughter, I misread Baby Peach as "Bobby Peach".

@  Onyxstrike : (15 October 2017 - 09:03 AM)

Yeah, I might've forgotten that the Beast is pretty much just a mindless killing machine. That's pretty much what I get for going off of the TFWiki summaries without having actually read any of it.

@  tffan01 : (15 October 2017 - 08:34 AM)

@Onyxstrike Well, to be fair, the quality of the story aside, Beast Within illustrates the fact that Dinobots are feral in nature, with what would happen if they actually lost control. That's a character flaw in a way, correct? 

@  2017 : (15 October 2017 - 08:21 AM)

Send me a PM if you need help getting to the true ending, also.

@  Strafe : (15 October 2017 - 08:15 AM)

Thinking about quirky robots occupies 30% of my brain's daily processing power. I can't remember birthdays and I never know where my phone is, but it's totally worth it.

@  2017 : (15 October 2017 - 08:03 AM)

Yay, I look forward to your dealings with quirky robots!

@  Strafe : (15 October 2017 - 08:01 AM)

Definitely, I started setting aside funds a month ago for the inevitable Black Friday digital sales in the Playstation and Xbox stores. Going to be ready this year, and that's one of the many games on my list!

@  2017 : (15 October 2017 - 07:30 AM)

Hey Strafe will you ever play Nier: Automata?

@  Onyxstrike : (15 October 2017 - 07:19 AM)

Plus, The Beast Within is overall not a very good story.

@  Onyxstrike : (15 October 2017 - 07:19 AM)

The problem is is that Victory's dreams are meant to prey on the Dinobot's character flaws. For instance, Grimlock downing every Decepticon in his path, but falling for Starscream's begging for mercy schtick, preys on his arrogence. What character flaws does The Beast Within prey on? Nothing. The entire premise of the book was to please the many fans who posed the many hypothetical "What if the Dinobots combined?" scenarios way back when, with a gratuitous death count to boot.

@  Bass X0 : (15 October 2017 - 05:51 AM)

What's wrong with wanting it to be a canon dream sequence?

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 October 2017 - 01:14 PM)

go home bass you are drunk

@  Bass X0 : (14 October 2017 - 12:15 PM)

My fanon is that The Beast Within is a follow up the Marvel UK annual story Victory. In Victory, the Dinobots are trapped within a dream world, unable to wake up - each one having dreams, ending in the Dinobots having another dream then waking up in a comic issue. My fanon is that The Beast Within is their final dream that finally pushes them into waking up.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 October 2017 - 10:25 AM)

As long as that means The Beast Within is still non-canon, I'm fine with it.

@  Locoman : (14 October 2017 - 09:29 AM)

When everything is canon, nothing is.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 October 2017 - 09:25 AM)

The TF multiverse is an arbitrary concept. Whatever an author thinks, goes.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 October 2017 - 05:59 AM)

Trypticon vs Deathsaurer. Make it happen!

@  tffan01 : (14 October 2017 - 05:31 AM)

Going by AVP, is Spider-Man and Zoids comic canon to the TF multiverse???

@  D Immortalis : (14 October 2017 - 12:37 AM)

stop that! we shall never speak of the "Embarassment", 'lest we be punished with more like it! =]

@  Pennpenn : (13 October 2017 - 08:23 PM)

Would the mutant heads have been on the headmasters or on the bodies (sort of like TR Galvatron's "helmet")?

@  Shrug : (13 October 2017 - 08:05 PM)

Alternate reality: Beast Wars mutant heads really took off. Nearly every Transformers since '96 has featured them. The big complaint against the line-wide gimmick in TR isn't being headmasters, it's the lack of mutant heads.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (13 October 2017 - 07:03 PM)

Car TF molds get made all the time; bat TF molds don't. I feel like that justifies making a new Convobat from a mold configured highly unlike the original.

@  Bass X0 : (13 October 2017 - 05:56 PM)

and yet Mindwipe is good enough to use as Convobat.

@  Shrug : (13 October 2017 - 03:19 PM)

I'm okay with that.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (13 October 2017 - 03:07 PM)

Takara seems to have decided that the TR Chromedome mold is unsuitable for anyone else besides Chromedome.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (13 October 2017 - 03:07 PM)

*shrug* No 21st century (Macromaster) Nightbeat toy seems to have satisfied a decent number of people, from what I understand.

@  Locoman : (13 October 2017 - 02:57 PM)

You could probably finagle a pretty good Nightbeat body from TR Chromedome, or even a heavy retool of Cogman.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (13 October 2017 - 02:44 PM)

Nightbeat in particular. Hasbro seems to love him.

@  Shrug : (13 October 2017 - 12:21 PM)

Yeah, they seem to be exploring every possible avenue of G1 now.

I'm almost expecting Korra to come to agree with the equalists and use the Avatar State to take away all bending around the world. Perhaps getting rid of bending would establish balance in the world, in a way.

That's actually what I'm thinking.

Remember how her teachers noted that, while she has mastered the physical aspects of bending, she has barely touched the spiritual aspects (which is why she's having such trouble with Airbending in the first place). Amon might be able to take away someone's elemental powers, but he can't do anything to the spiritual elements (discipline, self-control, wisdom); there's nothing physical about them.

It would make a nice narrative book-end for Korra to realize that she doesn't need control over the elements. Being the Avatar has nothing to do with "power," it's about balance.

Personally, I rather hope they don't go that root at the very least since I want to see the universe continue for some time.

But I do expect her to strike a balance between benders and mundanes, seems to be her big arc for the series. You also have to remember though that Roku pointed out how the world was so out of balance due to the loss of the Airbenders, losing even more benders might cause even more problems.

I'd almost hope perhaps Korra will learn an inverse of the spirit bending technique, one that would allow her to grant bending to others.

Guys, the last time the Avatar went missing there was a giant war. I don't think there's any chance of this happening. This series is gonna throw us for a few big loops, plot wise. I can almost guarantee that.

This episode wasn't as fun to me as the others. The first series was so good, its really hard to make comparisons, and really hard not to have super high expectations. I'm definitely still enjoying the show though.

The bit of flashback makes me wonder if Amon has some history with the old group.
What signature?

This got me thinking. If all bending was gone their world would crumble. They rely on Firebending lighting for electricity, earth benders for construction etc

I can understand not liking the different tone this episode had, but I certainly wouldn't call it boring.

We've got New relationship drama, We've learned a lot about Korra's mindstate and how she's seen herself up to this point.

I think she just moved past the "I'm the Avatar -deal with it." little girl from the pilot ... I completely didn't expect the first blood breakdown at the end.

and come on, how awesome is the satomobile

If Amon and Tarlokk were the same guy, they'd have the same voice actor, I think.

"Disabled people dont have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isnt a special need. Its a basic human right. Its a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

well that's an outside the fiction idea, ... in fiction he could just be trying to hide his identity - perhaps a second VA was needed to do this because whomever was cast first couldn't mask his voice enough to be different enough.

or you know Maybe the writters don't want the plot ruined because the guy with the mask is voiced by the same guy who does the voice for a suspect O_o

I liked it, it was something different. Amon is a very smart villain, and it seems that the only way to deal with him, is from a political and public opinion standpoint. I also liked how Korra goes from confident to full of fear and doubt realistically, she is now conscious of how deep the slag she's into is. Tenzin continues to be an awesome adult, being there for Korra and all. And Mako's " I'm in love" face was just hilarious.

I'm now wondering if Amon may be related to the guy named dropped by Tarlokk. We may have seen him in the flashback Korra had when knocked out.

Speaking of which, it was nice seeing older versions of Toph, Sokka and Ang. Interestingly enough, all three may be dead at this point too. No Zuko there either, with going by the outside info we learned last week, makes me think we will see him in the show during an episode later on.
